A4 and MoCADA | Bandung Residency Program

During the COVID-19 pandemic, a rise in anti-Asian hate crimes and renewed attention on the state-sanctioned violence against the Black community gave a renewed urgency to the legacy of Black and Asian American solidarity.

Asian American Arts Alliance (A4) and The Museum of Contemporary African Diasporan Arts (MoCADA) launched the Bandung Residency Program, the first NYC-based residency intended to foster understanding and allyship between the Asian American/Pacific Islander (AAPI) and Black communities. This four-month long residency is an opportunity to cultivate a dynamic safe space for changemakers interested in engaging in social justice discourse, restorative healing, location-based cultural activities, and expanding the narrative between communities.
